people have to ask themselves, is the reason governor romney is keeping all these plans to replace secret because they're too good? >> what we're seeing right now in my view is a trickle-down government approach which thinks that government can do a better job than free people pursuing their dreams. >> it's thursday, october 4th, and "starting point" begins right now. >> good morning! welcome, everybody. our starting point this morning is the morning after debate night in america. both candidates are on the campaign trail today, again, after the first of three presidential debates, the first one, of course, in denver last night. president obama and mitt romney going toe to toe on critical issues, like the economy and health care. and by most accounts, it was mitt romney who emerged the victor. lots of debate analysis ahead on "starting point." we'll be talking live with john mccain of arizona and rand paul of kentucky. from team obama, we'll be speaking with martin o'malley and campaign spokeswoman, jen psaki. plus, obama's former economic adviser, austan goolsbee. first, though, a look a
do, then governor romney is your candidate. >> i will not reduce the share paid by high-income individuals. i know that you and your running mate keep saying that, and i know it's a popular thing to say with a lot of people, but it's just not the case. look, i've got five boys. i'm used to people saying something that's not always true but just keep on repeating it and ultimately hoping i'll believe it. >> for 18 months he's been running on this tax plan. and now five weeks before the election, he's saying that his big, bold idea is never mind. >> you said you get a deduction for taking a plant overseas? look, i've been in business for 25 years. i have no idea what you're talking about. i maybe need to get a new accountant, but the idea that you get a break for shipping jobs overseas is simply not the case. mr. president, you're entitled to your own airplane and your own house but not your facts. i don't have any plan to cut education funding and grants for people on going to college i'm continuing on growing. is it so critical it's worth paying to china? i apologize, mr
, and if you are going to save any money through what governor romney's proposing, what has to happen is that the money has to come from somewhere. and when you move to a voucher system, you are putting seniors at the mercy of those insurance companies, and over time, if traditional medicare has decayed or fallen apart, then they're stuck. and this is the reason why aarp has said that your plan would weaken medicare, substantially, and that's why they were supportive of the approach that we took. one last point i want to make. we do have to lower the cost of health care. not just in medicare -- >> in a minute. >> but overall. >> okay. >> that's a big topic. >> i want to get to it. all i want to do, very quickly, before we leave the economy -- >> let's get back to medicare. the president said that the government could provide the service at a lower cost and without a profit. if that's the case then it will always be the best product that people can purchase. >> just a minute, governor. >> my experience is the private sector is typically able to provide a better product at a lower cost.
that governor romney is talking about is the same sales pitch that was made in 2001 and 2003. we ended up with the slowest job growth in 50 years. >> whether it was health care, jobs, or medicare, it was romney who stood out for his aggressive ste. >> i just don't know how the president could have come into office facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, an economic crisis at the kitchen table, and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for obama care. >> the president made his points in a slower, more laid back, often looking down, sometimes appearing disengaged. it's not that he didn't try to rip apart romney's economic plan. >> that kind of top-down economics where folks at the top are doing well, so the average person making $3 million is getting a $250,000 tax break while middle class families are burdened further. >> romney was determined to go toe to toe. >> well, but virtually everything he said about my tax plan is inaccurate. if the tax plan he described were a tax plan i was asked to support, i would say absolutely not. >> the president did get di
in the government's revenue. now, what governor romney says is i can make that up by closing tax expenditures and loopholes, but there's two problems with that. one, the arithmetic. if you you just look at people over $200,000, if you just look at the wealthiest couple of percent, the revenue cuts about $250 billion and the deductions, the broadening of the base gets you back about 160. so you're short about 90 billion. there's the math right there. and i heard absolutely nothing last night in a makes those numbers magically work out. in fact one of the things that governor romney said last night, he said, quote, i will not reduce the taxes paid by high income americans. now, this is a guy going around talking about the extent of his tax cuts. he said i will not reduce the taxes paid. a lot of people are scratching their heads. >> and they'll keep scratching. let me tell you something very interesting, bob. there was another candidate for president who also argued his tax cuts wouldn't benefit the rich. he said it during a presidential debate on the exact same date, october 3rd, in 2000. a de
't think you want to answer. what is the one question governor romney doesn't want to be asked? >> you are so much more clever than i am. it had not occurred to me to try to come with -- come up with that. i suspect that obama will go after rom flee on the whole, why don't you release your taxes and the personal stuff because that seems to be the heart of the campaign. i think that governor romney ought to ask the president, how does he justify running for re-election with an economy this bad, policies this failed, and his complaint inability to bring washington together to get anything done? i think the more romney can stick to the facts, the more trouble obama will be in tomorrow night. >> greta: what do you expect tomorrow night, in terms -- if people think this will be a huge event? or is this one debate of many, it is chipping away? and what is interesting, i think that afterwards, the pundits and the analysts -- and maybe i will be doing it, calling calling whd who lost? >> look, i think it's a very clear-cut situation. romney has to go in and be very clear and very factual and s
and governor mitt romney, the ones where they attempt to cut through the noise and speak directly to you? >> we shouldn't measure compassion by how many people are on welfare. we should measure compassion by how many people are able to get off welfare and get a good-paying job. >> if i could sit down with you in your living room or around the kitchen table, here is what i would say. when i took office, we were losing nearly 800,000 jobs a month and were mired in iraq. as a nation, we are moving forward again. >> president obama sitting around the kitchen table? okay. we would like to turn that idea on its head. what if you could moderate tonight's debate? the topics are endless, from health care to immigration, whatever else you could think of to ask the candidates. you have 90 minutes to moderate the debate. what would you ask the candidates? your responses later this hour. >>> hundreds of pastors from across america will get explicitly political from the pulpit this weekend. they actually want the irs to make them pay taxes. [ male announcer ] the freedom and spirit of malibu is an awesome pl
be at a disadvantage. >> challengers tend to do well governor mitt romney has more to benefit than we do. >> gretchen: chris christie guaranteeing round one going to romney. >> every time mitt romney is confronted with one of these moments he performs well and laying out his vision clearly and contrasting himself with the opponent. i am confident thursday morning, george. saying it is a brand new race with 33 days to go. >> gretchen: the debate is in the university of the denver. and focus on policy. and a white woman rejected from the university of the texas because of her race. it could be a major cut back with affirmative. judge robert decided to affirm the constitutionity of obama care. botched fast and furous program linked over 300 shooting in the new mexico. more than dozen teenagers left dead. 1300 guns are still unaccounted for. the failed program was under investigation since border agent briknow terry - briantery was killed. >> former governor said the moment he realized the house keeper. he tarted looking like me. and i kind of got it. it was never discussed. i put the things together her
that and start talking about the policies. the policies are ones where i hope that governor romney is able to point out the things that president obama has said that, if the economy doesn't get better, if jobs don't get better, he doesn't deserve a second term. we still have those issues in ohio and pennsylvania, where although ohio has improved some of its unemployment, we still have concerns about manufacturing, about steel, about health care issues, about energy, which are grave concerns in both of those states. and they have to be addressed by both candidates. >> right. and this memo, by beth myers, senior adviser, highlights some of that which you just said. but she says things like, he's a universally acclaimed public speaker, he has substantial debate experience, he's a uniquely gifted speaker. all speaking about president obama. the memo goes on to say that he's been in eight presidential debates compared to -- which i guess would be five with hillary clinton and three with -- with john mccain. but this, of course, would be the very first debate for -- for governor romney. the cyni
with governor romney campaigning in ohio this week. senator, it's great to see you. >> good morning, glad to be with you. >> kentucky is i think safe, and i'm from cincinnati and i would imagine that southern ohio is safe and that the work that romney has to do is probably as you go north, it gets harder and harder. is that the case in ohio? >> well, you know, i think in kentucky we've got it pretty well sewn up. ohio is more difficult. but, you know, in 2010, rob portman wins by 18 points, kasich wins for governor, they win the statehouse and the state senate and 10 out of 18 congressional seats and i'm hard-pressed to know how it's different in 2012 than it was in 2010. i think most of the polling is modeling, you know, 2008, and i think it's going to be closer to 2010 than it's going to be to 2008. >> senator, do you think for the votes that romney needs to get in ohio, is it -- does it help him to seem more conservative and get your support and it's, like, some of the conservatives say, wow, i like romney now because rand paul is associating himself with him, or does it hurt people th
'd cut subsidies for pbs do urg that debate. pbs released a statement saying, quote, governor romney does not understand the value the american people place on public broadcasting. paul ryan is getting outraged by the man who wants his seat in congress. ron zer bin raised $770,000 in the third quarter. to be fair, ryan stopped fund-raising when he accepted the nomination for vice president. he is still on the ballot and has 4 million bucks in the bank. >>> and who would play the president in a movie. michelle obama told the website pop sugar either denzel washington or will smith, and then she joked, will has the ears which might give him the edge. come on. now, we usually talk about fast food as the root of our country's obesity problem. but it sounds like americans are cooking up some fattening foods at home. the daily meal is out with the most searched recipes for 2012. it's our list today. at five, bread. yes, people do still make it at home. chocolate chip cookies, chocolate cake. number two is meatballs. here is a surprising number one. the most searched recipe, pork chops. pork cho
